60th birthday party with all the family even the grand kids. We all had a brilliant time had the side bumpers up and the kids used the ball shutes. Food and drinks not to expensive.

Been here several times. Never had any issues. Always a fun and enjoyable evening. Good selection of drinks and food from the bar which they can often bring directly over to your lane.
